#!/bin/bash
cd /var/www

version="latest"
if [[ ! -z "$1" ]]; then

# Remove previous backup riot
rm -rf riot.bak
# Create temp directory for new riot
mkdir riot.new
cd riot.new
echo "Downloading Riot $new_version"
curl "$URL" -o riot-tmp.tar.gz
echo "Unpacking archive"
tar -xzf riot-tmp.tar.gz --strip-components=1
rm -f riot-tmp.tar.gz
echo "Replacing files"
cd ..
cp -f riot/config.json riot.new/config.json
# Back up old version and activate new version
mv riot riot.bak
mv riot.new riot
echo "Updated to Riot from $old_version to $new_version"

Dependencies: bash, rm, mv, cp, cat, tar, curl, jq

To update riot to the latest version, simply run the script. Optionally pass a riot-web tag to download a specific release (useful for release candidates)

The first cd in the script is where it runs. Riot is installed to path/riot (so /var/www/riot by default). The script also uses riot.bak and riot.new directories and downloads the archive to riot-tmp.tar.gz.
